Prepared in honor of the work of Professor Milan Zeleny (management systems, Fordham U.), this collection concentrates on the essential multidimensionality of human and social affairs. Essays address conflicting objectives in European monetary integration, telecommunication routing models with multiple criteria, the De Novo perspective post-merger research and development staffing, simpler decisions through game theory, analyses of economic development and social welfare, the potential of managerial value drivers, Zeleny's system of human management in the advancement of human ideals, outsourcing risk analysis, expanding the limits of the possible in everyday life through mobile technology, and competence set analysis. Essays also describe creating a highly intelligence nation through regional education, going beyond ordinary data mining, managing knowledge through continuous improvement, sharing knowledge and socio-technical enablers, moving toward wisdom-shaped management in urban system and strategic planning, and collaborating to create win-win human systems.
